    Bunny took a rather one-sided loss to Mikey, a much smaller guy.

    His credibility is shot.

    Hooker wasn't going to make 143...not when he has got up to almost 168 at this point.

    Let's see if he can find someone to fight at 147 but it would not be a fight he may initially like...

    For Prograis, a fight with Easter would be an interesting matchup

    Damn, Hooker and Prograis are really going to pass on a nice payday and a "big fight" (given the current circumstances) over a pound and thousands of dollars. It must have been the money because they really, they couldn't agree on 144.5lbs?


    Yeah man, times are tough. Its hard making a buck in boxing right now. I will eat crow if Maurice Hooker beats a top five welter, maybe even a top ten. Kudratillo Abdukakhorov and Sergey Lipinets are the only welters in the top ten that I would give him a shot at beating.

    Regis Prograis has plenty of good fights at 140, but I hope he gets the rust off asap so we can see the big fights early next year, or with luck late 2020.

    Either Hooker is welterweight and should not have agreed to to the fight in the first place and Regis is right more money as a risk he never said he was going to welterweight

    Prograis vs Algieri is the rumor. Hope Hooker lands a decent fight.

    I hope they feed your skinny ass to Shawn Porter, Hooker ; the mauling is going to be hilarious. Maybe Eddie Hearn will use you to pad Josh Kelly's record, maybe you become a stepping-stone for Vergil Ortiz on DAZN.

    You are getting pimped-out, Hooker.
